Council & Working Groups

A member elected Council governs the Association. The Council comprises 16 individuals, based on the nominations received from member firms. Individual Council members are elected for a three-year term and the Chairperson is selected from amongst the members of Council and serves for a one-year term.

The work of Council is supported by a network of Working Groups, the activities of which are prioritised and coordinated by one of seven Steering Groups. The Programme Office, which includes the Chairperson of each Steering Group, oversees the allocation and resolution of issues at the Working and Steering Group levels.

The day-to-day affairs of the Association are managed by a full-time Irish Funds Executive team reporting to the Chief Executive.

Irish Funds is a member of EFAMA (European Fund and Asset Management Association), our European level trade association. View our representatives on EFAMA’s Standing Committees and Platforms on our Member Portal.
